having dinner, sitting next to al gore is taxing. it is really unpleasant. we asked him what was going on in the white house and he said 1%. i believe it is higher. but if we step back, we often don't know what is going on. that is the dilemma. i want to talk briefly and then answer questions about her new book that i have done, which is just out, called the price of politics. it is about 3.5 years of negotiations between the obama white house and the republicans in congress and the democrats. how they essentially tried to bring the federal government's financial house to some kind of order. the answer is they failed. we have a federal government whose financial house is in total disorder, total disarray. it is a historic problem. to try to put it in english, we have a trillion dollars of iou outstanding in the world. the negotiations, they agreed to raise what they call the debt ceiling, so the government can borrow a couple more trillion dollars. we are going to run it run out of that borrowing authority january or february of next year. they're going to have to go back and aut

raising money from people who can part with $2500 after taxes. he's raise $102 million, or 46%, almost half, through the end of august was coming from people who have maxed out on the donation. as reflected in the super pac. many of the people are fundraiser, bundlers for romney give them next to him, bundle from their friends and colleagues, people they work with, other money, and then write a check for 100,000 or 200,000 or more to one of the super pacs on the outside. so the question is sort of what does this mean for politics? this increase from the outside dollar spending transforming politics going forward? i think the answer so far is a little complicated. one of the driving forces behind this is the supreme court decision which trevor talked much better about me, lower court decision which basically allowed outside money much easier access to our airwaves right before an election. so there were barriers that were there, historically since the watergate era that prevented corporations every wealthy people to pool their money to spend huge amount of television as right before an

to raise your taxes, right? they love politicians who want to expand in any state. got to check all the boxes here, they love presidents who have a wandering eye. if they have the right political views. they love the lives of at least and by those presidents or politicians of wandering eyes, as long as there is a senate seat attention up for grabs. they love all things communist. i actually had a chance to live in the former soviet union, and i don't really look back on my time in the soviet union with a college student like pine for the days of soviet russia. but you get the sense that some of our friends in the are just like if we can only of those red lines again, that would be awesome. so from castro to gorbachev to other comets things come to mind, obama. no, a rideable yacht me for that. they love this. it brings back today with a could really draw a bright line. the evil united states versus the communitarians in the former soviet union. they love celebrities who, when they hear the word complicated acronyms like gdp, they think gdp, gdp, is that like p&g, like dole sake of o

41 with zero impact on the budget because it was paid for through gasoline taxes. [applause] thethe st. lawrence seaway connecting the great lakes, opening the great lakes to traffic again had been on the drawing board since the administration of theodore roosevelt and eisenhower -- eisenhower took, assumed the presidency in a time of mccarthyism and incredible communist witchhunt. he did it as he did so many things in the background. it was eisenhower orchestrated the army's response in the army mccarthy hearings. i'm not going to get into a contest but that stunk. and when it was over mccarthy had him vanquished but i think it was the desegregation issue perhaps in which eisenhower most often underestimated. president truman had ordered the army to be desegregated in 1950 but the that the army had not complied. 85% of the army was still segregated when i had to power. ike ordered the military services to desegregate and of course this was a new supreme commander whose words they immediately obeyed. he culminated the segregationists of will service and after brown versus board of e

, what's motivating that ad, who's the person saying there should not be a millionaire's tax or should be? who's the special interests and how does the voter sift through it? one of the most amazing things that's happening them when you look at the president's number in the swing states he is doing well. for some reason that message is not coming through but it's not compelling. if you look at some the swing state that we thought would be remarkably close at this point are really starting to trend towards obama in a way that every seems to think that unless these debates reset his presidential election, it's quite clear that the president actually headed towards creating an environment where on this map is a significant advantage. >> governor christie promised speedy this is right, met ron is going to be so exceptional tomorrow there'll be a seismic shift. >> let's watch. talk about it next week in class. >> the crossroads different venues also engage in more localized regions, states, congressional and senate. a bit about how you choose your priorities since you have a broader scope than
